    I worked at Boots part-time

    Pros

    - Flexible work schedule - at least in the store I worked in. My managers were all really easy-going, if you couldn't do a specific shift, they were willing to allow you to switch with others once you get their permission.
    - Very good salary, well above the minimum wage, considering the work you'll be doing is quiet easy

    Cons

    - There isn't much down side at all! The work I did, I personally felt was very easy and exactly what you would expect a customer assistance to be doing. However, it can get a bit mundane sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    - Raise awareness about the pharmacy training which customer assistance can ask to be a part of. I didn't find out about this till i worked there for almost 1 year!

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nottingham, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boots (Nottingham, England (UK)) in June-2015.

    Interview

    Pas d'entretien, a la dernière restructure on m'a donné ce poste sans me demander mon avis. La retruscture a été décallée de plus de 6 mois, de 6 semaines en 6 semaines. Aucune clarté sur le process de restructure. Update peu fréquente. Aucun plan d'intégration mis en place au moment du changement de poste. Annonce d'une autre restructure a venir des la prise du nouveau role.
